Waiting on Wednesday (16th January)

Hi everyone, thank-you so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My choice for this weeks WoW is Gameboard of the Gods by the wonderfully talented Richelle Mead.

Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X, #1)
 Author: Richelle Mead
Series: Age of X
Pages: 464
Publisher: Dutton Adult
Genre: SciFi / Dystopian
Pre-order Amazon: Gameboard of the Gods
Release Date: 4th June 2013

Synopsis. (Goodreads)

In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile after failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims. But Justin is given a second chance when Mae Koskinen comes to bring him back to the Republic of United North America (RUNA). Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military’s most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills.

When Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders, they soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger. As their investigation races forward, unknown enemies and powers greater than they can imagine are gathering in the shadows, ready to reclaim the world in which humans are merely game pieces on their board.

Gameboard of the Gods, the first installment of Richelle Mead’s Age of X series, will have all the elements that have made her YA Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series such megasuccesses: sexy, irresistible characters; romantic and mythological intrigue; and relentless action and suspense.

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I love Richelle Mead! Always looking forward to her books!
    My WOW

  2. Oh this sounds good. I haven't really read a sci-fi/dystopian book that I fell in love with but this sounds like it will be unputdownable! Great pick!

    Come check out my Waiting On Wednesday

    1. Thankyou, I like the dystopian/scifi mix up; this one sounds so good!

  3. Just found out about this one last week and was immediately intrigued. The concept sounds really interesting and the mythology could be really deep and intense.

  4. I'm ashamed to say that I have yet to read a book by Richelle Mead *ducks for cover*. But this book sounds right up my alley!

    Thanks for sharing your "Waiting on" Wednesday! Here is my WoW.

    1. Aww Alisa, I highly recommend her series & hope you get a chance to read them :-)

  5. I actually have not yet read Richelle Mead - horrible, I know. I love the idea of mythology set in the future. It sounds like the perfect mix of suspense and mythology!

    Great pick!

    Check out my WoW!

    1. Thankyou, I like the mythology/suspense mix; it sounds really interesting!

  6. I really need to read one of Mead's books this sounds good! My WoW

    1. I am a big fan of Mead, this one sounds wonderful! I so can't wait..

  7. I want this one SO much! It's probably because I'm senile too, but I'm so excited about it, I keep checking the release date, hoping maybe it'll get moved up. June is too far away and I just know I won't be able to get an ARC of this one. I loooove your pick. :D

    1. Haha! I live in wishful thinking with you :) I just hope it is released for kindle so I don't have forever to wait to read it.
